About State Swim

State Swim, founded by former Australian National Swimming Coach and educator David Urry, have been providing aquatic education, including swimming lessons and water safety, to young Australians for over 40 years.

Over this time we have developed a strong philosophy on how children best learn the skills required to make them strong, safe and confident in the water.

Our four decades of experience has shown that children learn through a combination of reviewing previously learned skills to ensure that they form a habit whilst also introducing new skills to keep the swimmer challenged, motivated and constantly learning.

Our programs and all swimming lessons are designed around this philosophy ensuring that children strengthen previously learnt skills to ensure that when they move onto more challenging skills, they do not lose that base.
